Fevers are often demonized, but they’re an essential part of the immune system’s effective response to infections. Having some good fevers can even strengthen the immune system.
In fact, people who have fevers not only recover from the flu more quickly, but also have lower risk of developing autoimmune and allergic conditions later in life!
If they last for too long or get too high, however, fevers can also be dangerous.
We now also have a ton of research showing that acetaminophen (Tylenol), a medication often recommended by pediatricians to help lower fevers, is associated with a higher risk of autism spectrum disorders and learning disabilities! (Yikes!)
So… what’s a parent to do when they have a kiddo with a fever?
Or what’s an adult to do when they’re sick with the flu and can’t miss work?
Come get educated, inspired, and empowered in
